The latest trend in home decor may not only boost your room’s aesthetic, but also your health and well-being. These pretty and purifying lamps can, “boost one’s energy level, focus and mood,” notes Natural Living Ideas. According to Well + Good, “salt lamps release negative ions that can help clean the air of pollutants, including “electronic pollutants” that come from phone chargers, laptops, alarm clocks, and televisions.” Not to mention, they provide warm, soothing light and an added sense of style to any space.

PINK SALT TO SEASON
Himalayan salt can be used as a substitute for regular table salt. Goop states that the pink color comes from, “tiny amounts of iron oxide (rust) in the mountains”. Unlike typical table salt, pink salt contains 84 natural minerals with zero pollutants, toxins, or chemicals, according to Natural Living Ideas. Dr. Axe notes that it is, “often said to be the most beneficial as well as the cleanest salt available on this planet today”. Additionally, Dr. Axe writes that this salt is said to increase respiratory functioning and balance the body’s pH levels, while aiding in digestion and deep sleep. Next time you reach for seasoning, pick up some pink salt for added benefits and color to your meal.
